Registered Staff Hours
This facility's grades were horrible across the board. We especially wanted to draw your attention to its inspection grade where it received an F. This isn't a good sign for its inspection reports. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 12 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we also would like to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines in recent years of over $50,000. This often means that inspectors became fed up after several years of failed inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received an F for its short-term care grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of long-term care. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 83.155075 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
The last area we graded was nursing. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in that area. Nursing scores are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
